I want to convert a large number of video files in various formats into
.mp4 files (container MPEG-4, codec H.264). I want to do this on an Ubuntu machine, using only command-line tools and I'm willing to install packages from
Ideally I'd like to be able to do ...
for VIDEO_FILE in *; do some_conversion_program $VIDEO_FILE $VIDEO_FILE.mp4 done
... and have all my video files in
.mp4 format with container MPEG-4 and codec H.264.
How would you tackle this problem on an Ubuntu machine? What packages do I need to install?
